Wine Advocate 94
“Far superior to the 2011 is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from an Oakville source. It offers notes of baking spices, cedarwood, forest floor, blackcurrants and toasty barrique. Medium to full-bodied, opulent and voluptuous with low acidity as well as melted tannins, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.” – Robert Parker
International Wine Cellar (92-94)
“(includes 6% cabernet franc; the label notes Oakville for the first time): Bright, deep red. Aromas of boysenberry and blackberry lifted by licorice and violet. Broader and deeper than the 2011 version but with no shortage of energy or definition. Really spreads out to saturate the palate without leaving any impression of heaviness. The sappy, building finish features substantial tongue-dusting tannins and solid structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. According to owner/winemaker Rosemary Cakebread, the 2012 season was “textbook.” – Stephen Tanzer
